New Farm: Back in Time Farm

I am very happy to welcome Ruth and Bill Hayden of Back In Time Farm to our family of farmers and vendors!

They are a small 14 acre family farm located in Statham, GA. They raise pastured poultry that are moved to fresh grass daily. In addition to what the chickens find on the pasture, they are fed a Non-GMO supplemental feed. They are watered with collected rain water. No antibiotics or growth hormones are given to chickens and no synthetic chemical pesticides are sprayed on grass.

Back in Time Farm raises red broilers which are a slower growing chickens and produces a flavorful bird – a "Back in Time bird" raised the old fashioned way.

B&G will still be offering chicken to the market as well. We have enough demand for chicken to support 2 great farms!!

Group Buy: Green Pasture FCLO

This weekend we will take orders for FCLO and other Green Pasture products.

This is a prepaid pre-order. As with all Group Buys, this item will not be available this Tuesday for pick up since I will be placing our order on Monday morning and due to shipping. I expect it to be available for pick up on Oct 6th.

This is a monthly group buy so don't forget to order this weekend if you need some FCLO!

Market News

My Daily Bread is on the Market this week!
My Daily Bread will be listing their items every other week. Feel free to double up on items that you would purchase weekly. Breads, tortillas, muffins, and other items freeze well. Stock up!

Cedar Rock Dairy Price Change (repeat)
We are so fortunate to have Cedar Rock Dairy deliver their milk weekly. Sam hates to do this but due to rising costs he has to increase the price of his milk. He's been putting this off for several months but unfortunately he has no choice but to increase the price so he can continue to bring us the best Non-GMO, grass fed milk. Starting this weekend these are the prices:
Milk – Raw Jersey Cow Milk for Pets 1/2 gal (Glass Jar)* – $4.40
Milk – Raw Jersey Cow Milk for Pets (Plastic Jug) – $5.50

If you've been purchasing in plastic but would like to switch to glass, Sam will list additional GLASS JAR SETS on the market for purchase. If you order your glass jar set this weekend you can immediately order milk in glass as the jars will already be at the farm. Please note you have to have glass jars or purchase a set before you can get the glass jar price! For more info on how the glass jar program works and your responsibilities please click here
